This is a key milestone in the launch timeline & we’re looking for as many Australian partners as possible to sign-up, trial the software & get started before launch. We’re on track for local availability in Microsoft’s Q1 of FY09 (read July-Sept) & so now’s the time to start to get your head around what Essential Business Server 2008 could mean for both you & your mid-market customers.
